Gladioli requiring specialist care

Less widely grown than their cut flower and garden cousins, species gladioli are less showy but offer a delicate charm. They often need specialist conditions so it's best to grow them as specimens in pots rather than as garden border plants. They flower in several seasons throughout the year, some as early as late winter in greenhouses.
